Utility Director C.J. Zimoski


811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to their state’s 811 center’s website a few business days before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line. 

The City of Williston supplies natural gas to their residents.  Hitting a natural gas line could end up in catastrophe!

811 protects you and your community! Hitting a buried line while digging can disrupt utility service, cost money to repair, or cause serious injury or death. Always contact your 811 center, wait the required time for utilities to respond to your request, and ensure that all utilities have responded to your request before putting a shovel in the ground.
